Gnomes at Our Chateau

I spent the weekend with gnomes. Alexandra twists the tips of their hats each time she arrives at our chateau. (Okay, it's an old camper ya'll, but it's on a hill, so I call it The Chateau.)

Being so close to nature makes me realize how small I am.

The chiggers remind me that no matter how big I am little things can get to me.

But the gnomes never falter. These little guys work hard.

They also know when to take it easy and add whimsy to the world.
I wish I could harness their magic.

After all, it's their world, too.


  1. Chateau--That's such a fun spin!! Love it. We had gnomes. Now some teenager in our neighborhood had gnomes. Dang it.

    Thanks for linking up!

    1. Teenagers are not ready for gnomes.

      I bought a gnome for my brother's birthday. It is in the style of those little green army men. He's lookin' angry with a big ol' bayonet over his head.
